Tagaru-fame Poornachandra is busy with Orchestra
The actor, who made quite an impression with his role as Jamoon Ravi in the Shivarajkumar-starrer, is busy working on his next based on the orchestra culture of Mysuru
"Jamoon Ravi. Look at the name. It just gets registered in your mind, even if it's heard only once. That’s the beauty of working in a Suri sir film. The way he names even a small character so beautifully," laughs Poornachandra Mysuru.
During a chat with Cinema Express, Poornachandra, who plays the role of Jamoon Ravi in Shivarajkumar’s Tagaru, says he is overwhelmed by the response to the character. "It is a very small character, yet a memorable one. I am grateful that I got a role exactly before the interval, which makes it stay in the minds of people. In fact a lot of people recognise me now," he smiles.
The actor, along with a few friends, is shooting for the film Orchestra, which chronicles the struggle of a poor boy who wants to become a successful orchestra singer. The film is based mainly on the orchestra culture of Mysuru. The film is currently being shot in and around Mysuru and Poornachandra is hopeful of completing the film by the end of this year. "Before when I used to shoot for this film, nobody bothered to talk to me or the team. But now, after Tagaru it's all different. That's the treatment you get once you act in a big film, even if it is a small role," he says.
Poornachandra, who hails from Mysuru himself, has a handful of content on social media, but is still waiting for his big break in the Kannada industry. It was the short film Phatinga that first got him some appreciation on social media. He has acted in over 30 short films and has made appearance in films like Lucia and Dayavittu Gamanisi. He has also acted in a lead role in BB5.
Today, thanks to his role in Tagaru, Poornachandra says he is getting many offers. "I'll make an official announcement about those when I sign the dotted line," he signs off.
